The village of Malham in the Yorkshire Dales

Malham village

Malham is a small handsome village nestled in a valley surrounded by hills in the southern Yorkshire Dales, eleven miles north west of Skipton.  The village consists of a clutch of stone-built houses, three pubs,the Gordale tea rooms, outdoor wear and gift shop, bed and breakfast establishments and a youth hostel. A beck or stream divides the village into two and ancient stone bridges provide access between the two sections. There are welcome shaded walks and greenery on either side of the stream and benches where visitors can picnic or rest. Parking is limited and most visitors attempt to arrive early to be able to park for free on the main road leading to Malham.

The green park-like areas on either side of the beck are shady and leafy - ideal places to rest on a warm day. Pennine Way walkers pass through the village following the long distance trail.
